Nintendo Switch Review. Video games are one of the most popular ways to unwind after a long day of work, a stressful few hours at school, or after a particularly tough time of running chores. From expensive consoles to affordable apps, everyone plays their games on their terms, with some opting for exclusively single-player games and others going for options with multiplayer support.
But no matter what kind of games you play, you must be aware of a certain few brands that are synonymous with the very idea of gaming. Just one mention of these brands bring images of their most popular games to mind, and you cannot help but resonate with the feeling everyone has while playing those games.
When it comes to popular gaming, Nintendo’s name doesn’t need any introduction. From Gen X to Millennials, and now to Gen Z, everyone’s childhood seems to be rife with the gaming giant’s offerings. With various games from its library now being household names, the mere mention of Nintendo is sure to spark joy in anyone.
That’s why, when you can see that the Switch comes with a Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Sporting support for some of the label’s most endearing titles such as Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart, the Switch – Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con - HAC 001 comes with a Switch console, Switch Dock, left and right Joy-Con, Joy-Con grip and straps, and an AC adapter with HDMI cable.
All in all, the Switch comes with everything that you might need for a mobile-to-console gaming experience, with all the accessories being light enough to carry around regularly. With multiple play modes, the Switch could also be an excellent fit for someone who wants the most value for money.
The Switch could be used as a handheld console with both Joy-Con attached. It also could be used in its tabletop mode with each detachable Joy-Con acting as its separate controller for multiple players. With it, it could also be docked to connect with a TV and have two or more players join in on the fun. In this docked mode, each Joy-Con also acts as its separate controller, and you could buy additional Joy-Con in case you want your multiplayer experience to involve more than two people. This extended multiplayer support means that you can play your favorite titles with family and friends.
The Switch handheld device by itself sports a 6.2” screen. According to users, the display of the Switch device is bright and crisp and provides a great visual experience to those who enjoy high-quality gaming. Since the screen is used both in its handheld mode and the tabletop mode, this makes Switch an excellent fit for those who enjoy mobile gaming.
On the other hand, the ability of Switch to be transformed into a full console and connect to a TV through its dock adds to its value proposition. Many users note that the device translates its games and graphics to the screen beautifully, and provides a gaming experience that is both high quality and fun for the players involved.
Users have noted that the Switch itself provides up to 3 hours of battery time in handheld mode. The battery life is quite decent under the high-quality gaming experience that it offers to its users. While the battery goes out in a few hours in the handheld mode, users could charge their Switch while using it in its docked mode. Users have noted that this solves the battery problem as long as you are comfortable in playing games while having your Switch docked. This also means that if you are playing with family and friends on your TV, you won’t have to worry about the battery running out.
The Joy-Con connectivity in multiplayer mode is wireless, which makes each Joy-Con a delight to play with according to users. The battery life for each Joy-Con is said to be around 20 hours of playtime, but some users mention that it seems to last longer. Since the Joy-Con are charged whenever they are put over their own dock or attached with the handheld during its charging, it has been noted that getting them ready for multiplayer game time is not difficult.
One issue that only a handful of users have seemed to notice in the Switch appears to be its battery time. According to them, the battery runs out too soon for their single-player or handheld mode enjoyment, after which they have to charge the product. However, this complaint remains limited to a select few users.
The Switch has had multiple versions released over the years, with the most recent one being released in July 2019. You can get your own for $269, which is a very affordable price tag.
Overall, the Switch remains a perfect match for those who enjoy casual gaming. With multiple play modes to choose from, the Switch could provide the ideal gaming experience to users - especially those who enjoy multiplayer games.
If you are looking for a multi-functional gaming device that comes with support for some of the most popular gaming titles in the world, the Nintendo Switch with Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con might be exactly what you need.
